Dampening Turnout

After millions of dollars spent, thousands of miles traveled, and much talk of chicken waste, coal-fired power plants, and pre-K, it looks like we may be headed for rain Tuesday.

Our all-season colleagues over at the Capital Weather Gang have ginned up this forecast:

"Showers and thunderstorms are likely both Tuesday and Wednesday (60% chance), especially in the afternoon and evening. High temperatures both days will be in the 80s with lows in the 60s," writes Chief Meteorologist Jason Samenow.

The National Weather Service mirrors that outlook for Roanoke. Norfolk may be better off, with just a 30 percent chance of showers.

But could the diehards courted by the campaigns using sophisticated databases and months of phone calls really be thrown off by a little rain?
